Known as Filberts Around Here

Filbert trees in the orchard are hanging heavy with golden chains.The long yellow catkins are hanging down and attacting honey bees.The yellow catkins are hanging heavy on the filbert(hazelnut) trees in the orchard. They attract the honey bees by the bushel.

The trees are just alive with the buzzing of the bees. It’s good to see all the activity and gives me hope that there will be a good nut crop come fall.
